One nice half day in the city can be done with a visit to Casa de Campo, the biggest park of Madrid that was formerly a hunting spot. The best way is to use the cable teleferico that rides for about 15 minutes over the park and the Manzanares river and you can enjoy the nice view from up there. The windows weren?t clear enough though for great pics. The park is peaceful with only a few people that cycle or running. There is a lake with some cafes, an aquarium and a zoo (a big one, with pandas, snakes etc).

Address: west side of madrid
Directions: by Metro to Lago station or by funicular (at Paseo Pintor Rosales, near parquet del Oeste).

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
